Static code analysis, or SCA, can be described as the analysis of whole-program source code without the execution of that program. A number of interpretations and even misconceptions about this technology and how it impacts or benefits you, the developer, have emerged over time.
Thankfully, there is also a lot of information about the many benefits SCA provides, from faster project execution, to better source code at check-in, to less costly development cycles and shorter time-to-market. In this whitepaper, we dispel some of the myths about SCA, and provide code examples to illustrate how SCA contributes to better code throughout the SDLC.
